add rows to table from an ajax response

P: 1
In my first php file I have a table with multiple rows and form fields. When the user selects a category I call a second php file which returns new rows (<tr>) which have to be added to the table from the first php file:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <select name="in[catid]" style="width:200px;" id="categorie" onchange="getSubCat(this,0)"> <?=$optioncat?></select>
the function getSubCat calls a php file using ajax and the result is set to innerhtml of div "result"
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var e = document.getElementById('result'); 
  2.     e.innerHTML = ajax.response;
How to correctly add those new rows to the table ?

Instead of using the innerHTML function, first add rows to the table by insertRow and then cells to the rows by insertCell. Then with that cell object, use innerHTML to insert data into that cell.
